This was a VERY beautiful home~ The reason I marked it was a "fair" stay, is mainly because when you took a shower the water never did get hot, only warm. Also the central air was required to stay on 72 ~! Which was NOT cool. Also I was disappointed that there was no TV at all in the Master bedroom. That was the first time that I experienced that. Other than that the home was Great~ The location was alittle farther then we expected but everything was really close by in terms of shopping.

Owner response: Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear about a few negative factors. We have never experienced a lack of hot water in our home. If you experienced this, it was probably due to having too many people in the home. We have also never had a problem with the thermostat setting, for they are Nest thermostats and easily adjustable with a turn of the dial. If you had trouble working it, you could have easily called us, our housekeeper, or handyman and we would have promptly helped you. As for the TV in the bedroom, we prefer not to have one and advertise as much. Thank you for the feedback. We only wish you would have contacted us during your stay so we could have addressed your concerns while you were at the home.

We had a wonderful time. We stayed with our four children and found the house to be very comfortable and clean. We really enjoyed all the amenities in the community. Our children enjoyed all the parks that were close by. The kids enjoyed swimming in the pool. We also enjoyed going to the city pool/water park in Chandler. It was only $1.00 to get in and had water slides and a lazy river. Lots of fun. Liked the area so much that we put an offer on a house and hope to be back soon. I would highly recommend staying in this home.

We are a couple who wanted to stay in Maricopa to see what it is like. The house is beautiful and very spacious on a quiet crescent backing onto an open space which makes it very private. The owners were great to work with and most accommodating and provided a book of material on local places, restaurants, etc. The area community offers a variety of fitness opportunities. We would definitely stay there again.

Owner response: Carl, Thank you so much for your review. It makes all the difference in advertising our home. I am glad that you and Lori had a great time. Please consider us again if your future plans call for staying in Maricopa! Sincerely, Shelley Biss
We had a wonderful stay watching spring training baseball this year at this place! Highly recommend, especially if you have a family as this place has the perfect set up for even multiple families! Pool had limited availability which was the only minor drawback, but owner is trying to get this changed! Wonderful kitchen, and plenty of room to spread out, we used the backyard and Bar-b-Q and loved them both! Accessibility to community parks was also a major plus for family entertainment.

Just returned from a fabulous vacation in Maricopa at the "Biss Bungalow". We stayed for nearly six weeks. It is a beautiful home and totally equipped with everything we needed. The owners were easy to contact and very accomodating. There was lots of room and it was very comfortable for our family to visit while we were there. We certainly would rent here again and highly recommend this location. Thanks Shelley for being such a great host.

Our family rented the house for the Thanksgiving holiday, what a lovely home, very tastefully done and everything you would need right at your finger tips. The owners were super to work with and always available if you needed any questions answered. I would highly recommend this home to anyone - the pool was great and the kids enjoyed the tennis courts.

Owner response: Thank you for such a wonderful review! It was wonderful that you had your family come visit at Thanksgiving. Thank you for choosing to rent our home for your family during their visit. We would love to have them stay again any time in the future.
We stayed for a week in this beautiful house and really loved it. Very quiet, clean, and comfortable with plenty of room to relax both inside and out. With no homes behind it felt secluded for such a convienient location. A short walk to the clubhouse and pools on nice pathways. Great owners to work with as well. I am almost 100% certain we will be staying here again.
